Forum: GratefulDead Subject: A visit from Sam Cutler

As many of you know I recently had the pleasure of meeting Sam Cutler back in Sept. For those who don't know Sam was the tour manager for the Dead from 70-74 and was the Rolling Stones tour manager for the 69 US tour among other things.
Back to the present, I guess Sam really liked Bali, because we became fast friends and he came back and pretty much hung out at my place for the last 2 weeks and we had more than a few good times.

Anyway, to make a long strange story short, I learned some invaluable info and insight into that period of Rock n
Roll history while meeting a heck of a cool but gentile soul. The man is quite the writer too and his book is on the level of Dylan's "Chronicles" in prose. One of those books where you wish it would never end honestly, and I highly recommend it http://www.amazon.com/You-Cant-Always-What-Want/dp/155022932X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&;s=books&qid=1267123732&sr=1-1 to any and all who are interested in the Dead the Rolling Stones and the psychedelic era of Rock in general. Hope you love it like I did.

Can't blame you for wanting out my friend. Seems everyone is saying that these days.
Anyway, it's not that hard to live where you want if you can make your living at home. Due to the wonders of the internet, It's becoming a lot more common.

Great for you BS! I know I usually call you "barong", but other than an affinity for large sea going (and gentle) herbivorous mammals, extinct and extant, I can't say why, but went with the short hand today. In any case, love both your story and your homesite...whewww...my brother visited there often while living in Singapore, and it and the Maldives are the two I became most familiar with indirectly thru him. Great places! And, trust you took my "moderation" comment in stride...

Hey WT I kinda liked it when you called me Baron gsong way back when. Kinda sounded like some kind of Hunter S. Thompson name or something.
I'm sure you meant no harm but BS could be construed the wrong way and just in case anyone thinks I'm BS'ing I'm going to attempt to post a pic of Sam at my place now. My first try at this so wish me luck.

Shoot that didn't work how do you do this?

Hmmm--I just use the little "add files" icon doohickey that shows up, like right now while I am writing this post, immediately "below, right" and it lets me browse my desktop after selecting it, select a pic, and then it is "in" the post (well, you have to click it)...Monte told us how to do it so it "shows" the instant a reader clicks the post, but that takes work for me...try again?
